Hi Bigvern, is the service schedule up to date?

What tool did you use to read codes?

'No Codes' on an OBD reader means the reader can't read any codes, not that there are no codes.

There may or may not be codes that the basic OBD reader can't read. The correct reader to cover the complete C3 is the lexia clone tool (from here), there is a topic about the lexia tool (here).

If you had DPF (or FAP) codes then the lexia would bring these up, along with any other code the C3 could throw at you.
